we're talking about in the center of the nation. 26 in chicago, new york city right above the freezing mark too, washington, d.c., not much warmer and we're saying where is spring? well, a very small sliver of spring/almost summer in part of the country in the southwest. los angeles will be 72, phoenix, 76. midland, texas, a real toasty, 77. look at laredo, take a little trip down there. 94 degrees. just a little peek of heat. across the nation to give you an idea what's happening elsewhere around the nation, remember, the severe weather threat along the gulf coast. portland, 52, the snow moves east into kansas city tonight and heavy rain, tampa, 830. i guess we could go there but it would be rainy.
